Candy Cane Christmas Wreath

It's that time of year again for all things Christmas. I have been crafting and working frantically to finish all of my Christmas decor. There are so many projects that I want to do but I simply do not have the time. Christmas is just right around the corner. I can't believe it is less than two weeks away. Anyway, I have had my eye on a Candy Cane Wreath for quite some time and finally decided to give it a try. My dad and I sat down and made this in less than an hour and I absolutely love it. It's too cute!


What you will need:
  • Candy Canes ( I used the candy cane ornaments from the Dollar Tree it's much easier)
  • Snowflake Ornaments (Also from the Dollar Tree)
  • Mini Ornaments (Far right- Found at Walmart)
  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Ribbon to hang wreath up

 

How to make it:
~Make several candy canes into the shape of a heart. Hot glue the centers of the heart together and the bottom of the heart together. Next, Glue the hearts back to back as shown above. Keep going until you have made a full circle and you can't fit anymore candy canes into the circle. Some may overlap but that's okay. Then, put a snowflake ornament in the center of your wreath. Last, put your mini ornaments all the way around the wreath and glue your ribbon on so that you can hang the wreath up.

Finished result....










What do you think? My dad is also crafty like me. I take it after him. We had so much fun making this wreath. I like the fact that it is different from your average wreath and it's super cheap and easy to make. Are you making any unique wreaths for Christmas?

  1. I think this turned out great! I especially love the smaller ornaments you used--I think it really pulls the whole wreath together:)
